AC-5 Beginner Bluegrass Banjo

Hi, it's Ross Nickerson
The Gold Tone AC 5  is a perfect design to land this banjo in the "best beginner banjo prices" category with superior wood neck intonation and bright tone than any other banjo in it's price range. I remember the old harmony composite banjos from the 70's that had a surprising good tone. When a new student would arrive with one of the composite harmony banjos I was always relieved. The sounded so much better than the 30 bracket design Korean beginner banjos ((that are unfortunately still around like the Wasburn B-90). Ever notice how real banjo companies, banjos designed by people who play banjo like Gold Tone, Recording King, Deering, don't make those thin fret board 30 bracket banjos.

When I heard about bringing back this design I though oh good, but expected something like the 70's Harmony. Oops, not even close, these are way way better. They have a wood neck and the intonation is as spot on as the expensive bluegrass banjos I perform with. The body is of much higher quality too and the tone was great. I mean that too. This is a great banjo and a lot of banjo for the cost. The pictures don't really do it justice. I recommend them or I wouldn't carry them.

Here is Goldtones description of the AC 5's creation

Note:The Goldtone AC 5 is not the same banjo as the Goldtone AC 1 without a resonator.


We “borrowed" the composite body idea from RainSong and Ovation, and discovered an efficient method for producing a wonderful, bright, loud sounding 5-string banjo at an unbelievable price. Includes standard transferable warranty

The AC-5 Resonator Banjo may stray a bit from the traditional wood body banjo design, but it packs a punch like no other and will stand up against any banjo in it's price range. The rim and resonator are molded from a compoisite material that is stong, consistent, and durable. 

Whether you are new to the banjo and looking for an affordabe model to get started on, or you seek the ultimate travel banjo, this banjo packs more than enough heat to echo through the hills and shine in any campfire jam
